Waaheb suffers shock defeatHeadlines
Art Of Logistics

Tony McCoy made the trip over to Fairyhouse on Wednesday to ride three for his boss JP McManus and, while Waaheb was a big disappointment, he did at least leave with a winner.

Dermot Weld's Waaheb had been second in a Grade One earlier in the season behind Jessica Harrington's Supreme Novices' Hurdle fancy Jezki but a fall last time out appeared to have shook his confidence.

McCoy could not get away from the pack and Bryan Cooper always had him covered on the Dessie Hughes-trained Art Of Logistics (9-1). Willie Mullins' Midnight Oil eventually passed Waaheb for second but he was no match for the impressive winner.

Hughes said: "He looked a good horse when he won his bumper although he was still a bit weak when he won his maiden hurdle. He'll come back here at Easter for a novice hurdle. He's got a Flat pedigree and the slightly better ground certainly helped."

Weld said of Waaheb: "He jumped well but the ground was tacky. He was disappointing."

McCoy won on Ronnie O'Leary's Western Man (7-4 favourite) in the Ladbrokes Punter Package Handicap Hurdle, after which O'Leary said: "He's got his head in front at last. He jumps well and we'll try to find a similar race for him."

Oliver McKiernan's Follow The Sign (2-1 favourite) quickened up impressively to land the Buy Tickets On Facebook Maiden Hurdle.

Corbally (13-2) provided trainer James Motherway with his first winner for McManus in the Follow Us On Twitter Novice Handicap Hurdle.

"That's my first winner for JP and it's grand to get that one on board," said Motherway.

The colourful Oliver Brady saddled Maccas Lad (6-1) in the Great Value Bobbyjo Packages Handicap Hurdle and exclaimed: "Roll on Punchestown and Fairyhouse."
